Home of the Anxious and the Fragile

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Much of American society is in the grip of a culture of safetyism that prevents young people from learning how to contend with challenges, difficulties, and contradictions. The Agenda welcomes social psychologist Jonathan Haidt to discuss his book, "The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure."
